Fat Crabs!

Ask for Kristen, she is the best waitress serving the best crabs in Ocean City. The shrimp is off the hook, and the ribs are amazing. We eat at Higgins several times a year. Coming from a local that should hold some weight. Enjoy!

We had a nice waiter, and the food came out very quickly. We ordered the all you can eat crabs and snow crabs. SO much food! My husband is tricky when it comes to things he likes (such as crabs) and he loved them here. He couldn't stop eating (ate two and a half plates). Food is fairly priced, especially... More

Took the family out for crabs while we were on vacation in OC. Crabs were great for AYCE but the best part was the service. Our server Katie (or Katherine) was fantastic. Next round of crabs was out before we had to ask. Got our money's worth for sure. Will go back again and will ask for Katie if she... More

We went yesterday, the food was delicious. My husband got the scallops and Steamed clams for appetizer and was very tasty. The sea food platter was tasty and the server was very nice with my kiddos. I think it was a little bit overpriced.

Our third time to Oceam City and our second time to Higgins Crab House for AYCE crabs, shrimp, and ribs. All three main courses were excellent as were the sides. And a restaurant's atmosphere is always improved by the wait staff, and Kristen was fabulous! Personable, gave good recommendations, and made sure we were well stocked with food! Higgins is... More
